I have managed to get past the problem by copying the libgsf-1.so.12
file from the /usr/local/lib/contrib folder and then symlinknig that to
libgsf-1.so.12 whether that will actually fix the underlying problem or
not - i don't know. Seems for some reason on my system that librsvg
requires a symlinked version of libgsf, while the new libgsf 1.13
doesn't create such a file. I'm still in the process or rebuilding
Gnome2, however - once i'm finished i'll post my success.
